Launched in Aug 2015 The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Lowdown

Before Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was launched, Note 4 was arguably Samsung's best smartphone. So what has been upgraded and is Note 5 worth your money? Let Bargain Queen highlight the best and not so good features and summarise the different prices of this phone for you!



  • 5.7" Quad HD Super AMOLED (518 ppi) screen (almost identical with Note 4)
  • Slimmer and sleeker, framed by sleek metal and glass. Dimensions: 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm (Weighs 171 g)
  • Improved S Pen functions
  • Full charging with the wireless charger (sold separately) takes only 120 minutes
  • Fast performance with 4GB RAM, Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC processor
  • Rear Camera remains at 16MP (from Note 4), Improved front camera at 5MP



  • The 3,000 mAh battery it comes with is not removable.
  • Memory is now not expandable. Comes with internal storage 32gb or 64gb.


BargainQueen thinks that the pros outweigh the cons and Note 5 is a beautiful high performance phone to get especially if you use the stylus functions. However, if you need the additional external storage, stay with Note 4 and you won't miss anything critical! Check out more reviews and comparisons:
